Birding Emeryville Shoreline 9/4/15

This evening I went birding along the Emeryville with five other birders as part of World Shorebird Day.  We walked from the Emeryville shoreline near fire station along the shore and through the park and Marina from just  5:50 PM – 8:15 PM during high tide.

The bird of the day was a Common Murre that we saw shortly before leaving. The most abundant bird was the Marbled Godwit. We identified 26 birds to species (including non-shorebirds). We also saw a swallow that quickly flew by and we were unable to see well enough to ID. There were also a number of immature gulls that we were not able to identify.
